Never Too Much Firefly. June 21, 2010

A conversation between me, Mum, and Nemo while looking through our Netflix queue:

Me: Uhhhhh… Mum… what’s Waitress?

Mum (blushing): Uhhhh… that’s… uhhh…

Me: That’s… that’s a movie starring Nathan Fillion, isn’t it?

Mum: Well-w-uh-yes.

Me: Heh heh heh. Fangirl.

Pause.

Me: I’ll watch it with you.

Pause.

Nemo: I will, too.

Later:

Mum: That whole Waitress conversation earlier was pretty funny.

Me: Yeah… and the only reason I knew what that movie was?

Mum: Yeah?

Me: I… uh… I saw it on Nathan Fillion’s Wikipedia page.

We have been watching too much Firefly.

In Which I Don’t Get Killed or Harmed or Anything! June 2, 2010

Oh hey! If you’re reading this and you read my post yesterday (read it before you read this one!), you’re probably guessing that I didn’t die at the party yesterday. That would be a correct guess. It was actually pretty fun, and nothing bad happened to me.

When we arrived, I awkwardly introduced myself to Zola, the birthday girl, who was very nice and said that it was no problem that I was there. I quickly learned that there was a water fight taking place, so I took off my sweatshirt and shoes and joined in.

It was an intense battle and it took me a while to find a water gun. Well, it wasn’t technically a water gun, more of a water-squirting device that wasn’t shaped at all like a gun, but whateva. Everyone got soaking wet. My jeans got all weighed down with the water. It was freezing. And it was super freaking fun.

When the fight ended, Thea and I ran back to her house (Zola lived really nearby) and changed clothes. We ran back just in time for delicious ice cream. I’m not ashamed to say that I ate two cones. YUM. Zola opened her presents and we started watching Alice in Wonderland. Thea and I had to leave, so we left.

It was quite fun, though altogether not very good to blog about. You sick freaks probably wanted me to get attacked by ninjas and held hostage by cannibals or something, didn’t you? Granted, it would’ve made a great story, but not the kind of thing I want to have happened to me.

Awesome: I would so see this movie.

Unawesome: Nothing!

 

Corndogs! and Firefly June 1, 2010

Oh hey! Guess what? Guess what guess what guess what?

CORNDOGS! Hoo! Ha! Nerdfighters!

Apparently, I just got invited to the tenth birthday party of a girl named Zola. She is friends with Thea and the Sometimes Demons, and apparently she is very nice and anti-demon. Whateva. I guess I’ll go, being as odds are I probably won’t get beaten up again. *pleasepleasplease* And I suppose, even if something undesirable happens, it’ll make a good blog.

The sacrifices I make for you.

Anywho, guess what I did this weekend? I finished Firefly and Serenity! Wooohoooo! (SPOILER ALERT!!!)

Okay, so after watching the last episode of Firefly, I was sort of like, “Huh?” because no one died! Hooray! I could’ve sworn someone would’ve died!

I was freaking sad about Inara leaving, because she and Mal were totally in love and he screwed her now-dead friend and nooooo!

But then came Serenity. By that, I don’t mean the ship, I mean the Big Damn Movie. Then, of course, they had to kill Book and Wash. I mean, seriously, Wash? Wash? Everyone loves Wash! You can’t kill him!

Then again, that’s what I said about one of my favorite characters in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Gorram Joss Whedon, always killing the awesome ones… *sob.*

I was really surprised more awesome people didn’t die, though. Like Kaylee? I totally thought Kaylee was dead. Also Simon. Also River, but only when she jumped into that room full of Reavers. I mean, I thought she was sacrificing herself, but she fought the Reavers! That is so hardcore!

And Mal and Zoe and Inara and Jayne and Simon and Kaylee didn’t die! Yaaaaaay!

Basically, minus the people who died, it was totally awesome.

I’ll never forgive Joss Whedon for killing Wash, though. That was just wrong.

Sick and wrong.

In other news, it’s June! I think! Maybe? I’m pretty sure it’s June. But that means it’s almost summer! Wouldn’t be able to tell, though-it’s cold and rainy outside. Blegh. Freaking rain, I want summmmmeeeerrrrr! Please?

Pretty pretty please?

Awesome: FIREFLY!

Unawesome: *sniff* Wash and Book….

 

In Which I Fangirl Firefly. May 26, 2010

Oh hey! I need to hurry because I’m about to take a bath,* but I wanted to post a blog to celebrate Geek Pride Day. I’m not really doing anything special in particular to celebrate, being as I’m a Proud Geek everyday. But right now, I’m listening to Siriusly Smiling and I’m going to watch the sixth episode of Firefly tonight, so that probably counts. Yaaaaay, Firefly! I love Firefly! Yay yay yay! Hopefully, I can use my awesome Jedi Mind Trick skills to convince Mum and Nemo to let me stay up all night watching it. Heh heh heh.

ANYWAY, Firefly. Is. Effing. Amazing. Please please please no spoilers. And don’t even ask me whether I like BSG or Firefly better, because they’re both incomparable and amazing.

(Minor spoiler alert!!!) Zoe is so cool! Wash and Jayne (is that how it’s spelled?) are hilarious! Mal is so freaking awesome, like some type of male Kara Thrace only less frakked up and angelic. River is so crazy! I’m not sure whether or not I like Simon! The Shepherd is so mysterious! Kaylee is so awesome and so effing adorable! I just wanna hug her!

Similarities between Kara Thrace and Mal:

1. They’re both totally hardcore and fighty and stuff.

2. They’re both effing awesome.

3. A Great Majority of the population thinks they’re both hot. (Don’t deny it. I know straight girls who would totally go gay for Kara.)

4. Okay, I can’t really think of any more similarities, but trust me, there are loads.

Awesome: This Land. Also, that part where Mal gets Kaylee the dress and then everyone is a jerk to her and then she finds friends yaaaaay! Also, this.

Unawesome: Oh my God, why won’t Mal and Inara freaking kiss already? Jeez!

P.S. I’ve come to the distressing but inescapable fact that every time you ship Harry/Hermione or Kara/Lee, God cancels a Joss Whedon show.

*Like the Great Colin Singleton, I much prefer baths to showers.

 

Life Update, Sudden but Inevitable betrayals, and more rap! May 20, 2010

Oh hey! Guess what I have for you today? Well, no. Not a Darren e-mail. But I do have another rap (this time it’s to Thea, from me)!

Daisy:

You know that Thea is the coolest

If you’re a jerk, she could be the cruelest

Yeah, you know she’d chop off your face with a axe

‘Cause she’s not so good at c-c-comebacks

But that’s all right, you see

‘Cause she’s Th-Th-Th-Th-Thee…

A. Thea. Not… you know? Screw this.

Bookwormdaisy out!

I’m not very good at rapping.

In other news, the demons might not be so demonic after all.  London and Gracie came over to hang out yesterday. True, they have frighteningly little knowledge of Shakespeare’s genius,* but they seem pretty nice. I’m assuming the reason they were acting evil that one day was the third girl (I think her name was Nadaine)’s mystical, devil-like influence. But I’ll be on my guard and keep you posted.

In even more news, I’ve started watching Firefly for the first time. I’m only on the second episode, and I already love it. Kaylee is so awesome! Mal is so hilarious! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal (I love Wash)! It’s funny watching it after seeing Dr. Horrible ’cause Mal and Captain Hammer are both played by Nathan Fillion, who, for the record, is supremely magnificent! River totally reminds me of the Hybrid!

Awesome: Apple juice! Apple juice! You and me in Japan. Watch me dance.

Unawesome: Nothing!

*”What did you guys do in school today?” “We watched half of Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet.” “Hamlet?” “Yeah, you know… Shakespeare? To be or not to be? Screw this.”
